The Worth Partnership Project is a European Commission initiative that promotes collaborations between designers, creatives, manufacturers, tech companies, small/medium enterprises (SMEs) and startups throughout Europe to innovate and develop advanced prototypes that go beyond our current industries´ limitations.
Worth selects 150 projects over four calls/years and provides financing, training, coaching, networking activities, as well as participation in trade fairs aimed at bringing the products to market. Each call culminates in an intense two-day event, Worth Weekend, held in a European city where all participants gather to kickstart the selected projects.
Worth focuses on areas such as fashion, accessories, footwear, textiles, furniture, jewelry, leather goods, decoration, communication, sales and art direction within the 28 European as well as associated Cosme countries.
Within the Worth framework, the IED REC Team manages the following tasks:
1. Strategic Consultancy.
2. Communication. Branding, Web & Design Consultancy.
3. Steering Committee. Selection and Contact.
4. Worth Weekend Design and Organization.
